Knee Pain Treatments in Chandler, AZ
Many people in Scottsdale and the surrounding metro Phoenix areas suffer from knee pain for a range of reasons. Some people have sports injuries, others can trace their knee pain to decades of wear and tear or inflammatory disease. Whatever the cause of your knee pain or limited mobility, Desert Orthopedic Specialists can help.
Injections and surgery may be effective knee pain treatments, but some people’s knee pain may also respond positively to completely natural, non-invasive pain management strategies. At Desert Orthopedic Specialists, we are committed to helping our patients avoid the downtime, rehabilitation and pain that often accompanies more invasive knee treatment options. That’s why we’re proud to offer a number of all-natural knee pain treatments, including acupuncture and cupping therapy.
In addition to naturopathic knee pain treatments, we also provide an array of injections – including PRP, prolotherapy, steroid injections and viscosupplementation – designed to boost the body’s healing abilities and help reduce pain. The goal of these non-surgical treatments is to enhance range of motion, improve mobility and allow patients to heal and live unencumbered, ideally without resorting to surgery.
In almost every situation, if a patient is given a choice between a safe, minimally invasive outpatient procedure and a more traditional inpatient surgery that requires a long recovery period, they’re going to choose the former rather than the later. Dr. Fox is committed to helping as many patients as possible using minimally invasive arthroscopic knee surgery, especially for osteochondral defect repair (OCD) and retinacular release.
"I would like to personally thank Dr Fox, John Nelson and the entire professional staff at Desert Orthopedic Specialists for making my experience with my knee replacement surgery and follow up so stress-free. At this point after 4 months since the surgery I am very happy with the outcome and I'm looking forward did having my other knee replaced and feel very fortunate to have trusted them with such an important decision in my life."
We are dedicated to helping patients realize the potential the human body has to heal itself if given the proper nurturing, nutrition and modern orthopedic care.
